Make-up and fashion house Dior has named Anya Taylor-Joy, the rising Hollywood star, as its latest global brand ambassador across its core industries.
The Golden Globe winner, who stole audiences’ hearts as chess prodigy Beth Harmon in the hit Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit – for which she received her accolade – will front campaigns for the luxury French brand’s make-up ranges, helmed by Image Director Peter Philips, and don the future creations of Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s Creative Director.
Hints that the actress could be joining the group’s league of ambassadors have been made over the last year, with the actress wearing numerous custom Dior looks for a host of red carpet appearances.
Most recently, Taylor-Joy wore a custom pale yellow dress, paired with a yellow opera cape, at the 2021 Emmys held in California, US.
Back in June, she appeared alongside her now fellow ambassador Cara Delevingne as a guest at a Dior show in Athens, Greece.
Meanwhile, during a ‘In The Bag’ interview with American Vogue, Taylor-Joy revealed two Dior make-up products that she uses.
The announcement of her new position comes days after Dior named 18-year-old British tennis sensation and US Open champion Emma Raducanu as its new muse.
Star of 2015 horror film The Witch, Taylor-Joy’s first film appearance, the 25-year-old British-Argentine is no stranger to a beauty collab.
In 2019, she signed a deal with Viktor & Rolf to be the face of its latest fragrance: Flowerbomb Midnight, and joined up with the Dutch fashion and beauty maison, which is licensed by L’Oréal, once again in 2020 to front the campaign for its Flowerbomb fragrance line.
As part of the Dior family, Taylor-Joy joins Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Yara Shahidi as well as Delevingne, who have all fronted campaigns across Dior’s make-up and fragrance categories.
